Hey guys and gals! I'm new to the forum so please excuse me if this is a question that has been asked before,
I would like to get pricing advice, what the max price I should pay for mbp 15 2013 Retina I7 2,4, 8 ram and 256 SSD. Intel hd graphics 4000 nvidia geforce gt 650m 1gb memorY gddr5. Battery cycles aroung 850.

Owner has original box, looks in good shape, selling cause upgraded to higher model.

I will be in the UK next week for few days, any relaible source where I can have a look for used MBP 15.

Many thanks.
Mitchell

850 battery cycles is A LOT (Apple claims they're good for about 1000 cycles). If you do go with this particular machine, expect to replace the battery almost immediately if not within the first year (I believe the average cost is about $150-200 from Apple which I would highly recommend)

The most I would personally pay for the machine would be around $650-700. Although, I highly recommend taking a look at other options as you'll likely find something comparable (if not higher capacity storage) at a similar price range and with a much lower battery cycle count.

2013 was six years ago. I wouldn't pay more than perhaps $400 for that laptop. It likely doesn't have long left. You could get 3 happy years with it, or it could die in 3 months.
